Six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Terrell Owens could be set for an NFL comeback, according to his agent Jordan Woy.
39-year-old Owens has been absent from the league since his spell with the Cincinnati Bengals ended in 2010, yet despite his advancing years, Woy clearly feels his client still has the ability to play regularly at the highest level.
He told ESPN: "I know if he goes out there and gets a shot, he'll make a team. We've talked to a lot of teams that have said he's a great talent, we're set as of right now, but if we have injuries we may reach back out."
Owens looked as if his exile from the NFL would end last summer, as the Seattle Seahawks looked set to take a chance on him with a one-year contract worth $925,000.
However, his hopes of a return to the league were quickly dashed as the franchise released him before the start of the season.
"He really wants to play," Woy continued. "He knows he's up against the wall, but he really wants to play."
Owens, traditionally a somewhat controversial figure, is one of the most celebrated receivers ever to play in the NFL. He boats figures of 1,078 receptions, 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns in an illustrious 16-year career.
